Administrative/Biographical history:

Christ Church, Roxeth was built in 1862 and had a capacity of 350 people. The building was designed and built by George Gibert Scott, who would later be knighted. The church consisted of a chancel, nave, transepts, north aisle and a tower with a small spire, a later addition to the church was a south aisle which was added in 1866. The building underwent restoration work between 1953 and 1954, this was carried out by G.H. Jenkins.

Christ Church became a district chapelry in 1863, it was created from the mother parish of Harrow and bordering the new chapelry of St John the Evangelist in Wembley. There was a perpetual curate at the church until 1873 when a vicar was appointed. Between 1963 and 1964 the church was served by a vicar and a curate. The patronage was originally exercised by trustees and in 1963-4 by the Church Patronage Society. During the early 1980's church attendance declined and the parishes of Christ Church and St Peter's amalgamated to become The Parish of Christ Church, Roxeth and St Peter, Harrow.
